J.U.L.I.A. fundraiser reaches crescendo with live musical concert

If the thought of an enhanced edition of J.U.L.I.A. is already music to your ears, you ain't heard nothin' yet, because CBE Software's current fundraising campaign aims to finish on a high note with a live online musical concert from Jan Kavan.

Along with being an innovative game designer, Kavan is also an accomplished composer and cellist, and his next live performance will be an "IndieLude" thank you concert for fans who successfully funded his project (although those who haven't are free to watch as well). Kavan will be accompanied on piano by his wife Barbora Kavanová, playing pieces from such composers as Ástor Piazolla and Gabriel Fauré as well as some of Jan's own compositions. The concert will be recorded live and broadcast on YouTube on April 10, 6:00 pm GMT (time zone converter).

Following the recital, Jan and J.U.L.I.A.'s artist Lukáš Medek will answer questions as they continue the final push towards their next "fullscreen exploration" stretch goal that will enable them to recreate all the original mini-images as full screen high quality renders, and switch to a context-specific command interface based upon individual regions. The latest old-new screen comparison of an abandoned research station highlights the differences between versions.

There is still a week left in the Indiegogo campaign for J.U.L.I.A. Enhanced Edition. To learn more about the project, and about the publishing trials faced by CBE with the original version of the game, check out our recent interview with Jan.
